The purposeof this invention is to decrease scan times by reducing the receive to receive time. The receive to transmit time can also be reduced in this manner. This can be accomplished by adapting the delays required after synthesizer programming to the frequency shift of the VCO. In addition, for the purpose of scan program- ming the receive frequencies in the scan list may be scanned in frequency order to minimize the frequency shift between the current channel and the next channel to be scanned. The ordering will not only allow shorter times to be used but will also decrease the synthesizer lock time in some cases.
